More About the Author

Goodkind was born and raised in Omaha, Nebraska, where he also attended art school, one of his many interests on the way to becoming a writer. Besides a career in wildlife art, he has been a cabinet maker, violin maker, and he has done restoration work on rare and exotic artifacts from around the world -- each with its own story to tell, he says. In 1983 Goodkind moved to the forested mountains he loves. There, in the woods near the ocean, he built the house where he and his wife, Jeri, live, and came at last to tell his own stories.

Stones of Tears is the second in the Sword of Truth Series and I have read the book twice already. The author has created characters you really care about and you want to win through. The story is well thought out and fast paced with barely a pause between adventures. The imagination of Terry Goodkind leaves you breathless and gasping for more. Stones of Tears is a flowing story following the main characters, Richard, the Seeker of Truth and newly realised wizard, and his love Kahlan, the Mother Confessor, go through trials and tribulations in their quest to defeat the evil of Darken Rahl and his master. Stone of Tears has some of the creatures and characters you will find in other fantasy books, a dragon, wizards but several morenever heard of before. Each hero and villain is unique in themselves. The story is overflowing with magic and adventure and creates a story with is a must for fantasy readers old and young alike.

My only regret with the Goodkind books is that I found them when I was aged 73 years, and then only because I had watched The Legend of The Seeker on TV. Masterful, imaginative plots that generate surprise after surprise and a whole new civilization unfolds before your eyes. Not Tolkien, but extremely enjoyable!!! I have 12 more books to go. Hope I live that long!!!!

Format: Paperback
Warning : Some Spoilers!

Better in some respects than Book 1, possibly as the author matures alongside his characters. Overall this is an enjoyable yarn but the initial pace of the plot is so slow it borders on lethargic followed in the final third of the book by a change of pace to the other extreme.

There are irritating elements - For the first 200 pages there's a lot of declarations of eternal love coupled with the complete failure to get married. For the next 400 pages Richard literally fails to understand anything that ANY other character utters. Indeed the first time Richard actually admitted to understanding something, I almost fell off my chair. Nonetheless, the Sisters of the Light and the culmination of the book in and around the Palace of the Prophets is not half bad. Three stars for Mr Goodkind!

I used to think nothing could be better than Lord Of The Rings until I picked up the Sword of Truth series. Once you pick up these books you will be lost for days in Richard and Kahlan's world. Mr Goodkind's writing is simply amazing he can introduce new characters with ease making you feel as though you have been reading about them for ages when in actual fact you have only read two pages about them and then other times he will leave you sweating and unable to put the book down. This is such a long book but make no mistake you will hang on to every word! . If you only buy one Fantasy book make sure you buy this one it's buy far and away the best out there.

By Alexander VINE VOICE on 23 Jan. 2011
Format: Paperback
I am not going to review this in such a way as to give the plot away, others have described it in such a way, so I am not going to repeat what has already been said.
I have watched the both of TV series The Legend of the Seeker, and whilst the first series detracted little from Wizards First Rule [but I pulled out many important details that the series had twisted..Darken Rahl being Richard's father not his brother for starters], I approached this one with an open mind and delight at delving into another of the series.
To compare the second TV series with this chapter of the epic saga would be like comparing chalk and cheese....the TV series has twisted the story so much I cannot see how they can continue the story at all [maybe that's why there is rumours there is to be no more], Richard is a fully fledged wizard, more powerful than his grandfather Zed in books
If you're reading this and are a fan of the TV series, read the books, they are more compelling, more complex and ultimately more enjoyable than the series.
The book was compelling reading, vastly enjoyable

By S. CARDEAL on 10 April 2012
Format: Paperback
Terry Goodkind was able to produce a second Sword of Truth story which manages to stay fresh from the beginning till the end of the story.

Terry Goodkind is a very talented author. The character development is excellent, with no unnecessary flashbacks or chapters filled with historical content. You get to know, know the main characters through conversation, reflection upon actions happening to them, with the action centering around Seeker and the Mother Confessor.

Terry Goodkind has a style which is a little different from other writers, he keeps sending you in different directions with regards to the story and the characters. Very impressive, which in my opinion make the events in the story stronger and more realistic. Adding more characters could complicate the story but Goodkind finds a way to make the story interesting, he has an easy style of writing.

This book was given to me and i'm not sorry at all, i strongly recommend this book as i did the previous one.

This is one of the best books I have ever read. I cried, I laughed, I rejoiced, I felt scared, I felt angry, I felt triumph. When reading this and other books by Terry Goodkind you feel! Its like you are really there and the book is very realistic and well written!
